“Thuto” is the third Album from Cassper Nyovest, such a quick success that the album went gold within the first day, followed by reaching platinum .
Cassper’s first album, Tsholofelo, seemed to reflect the hunger for success and was great; the second album “refiloe” seemed to be a lot more out of touch with the industry, with the rapper seemingly dissociated or disappearing from the sound waves , even if temporarily. Thankfully upon his return the rapper subtly reminded us with his lyrical and creative greatness, the third album “Thuto ” introduces all fans to a more personal side of the rapper. Whilst not all songs reflect personal matters the album introduces some much needed new tracks that are sure to be club-bangers filling our social scenes before the summer.
The song ‘Ngiyekeleni’ where he features Black Thought from the legendary band, The Roots, is a jump and is one of our favorite tracks on the album. Its pretty dope to hear Black Thought jump on a trap beat and still kill it effortlessly.
Touch the sky / Tito Boweni/ Bentley coupe are other jump tracks that will have you moving and forget how personal the artist got with this album .
The track that stood out for us where “i wasnt ready for you ”. Obviously the question we all asking is whether he is referring or speaking about ‘Boity’ we already know he is definitely speaking about Boity. Superman is a classic, its a song dedicated to his father and all the father /Destiny by far is our favorite track bringing a touch of class . He featured Goapele, and together they remake Malaika’s popular hit destiny. The album production was on point, at times some of the album production elements reminded us of Kanye ‘s old school style on college drop out and graduation. Lyrically Cassper has never been a Kwesta or Reason but we know if needed, he can throw punch lines for days and this album was a the artist telling us about story in his life , allowing us to get to know him well and he pulled it off effortlessly!
We recommend that your definitely give yourself the treat of purchasing this album – it’s a well earned upgrade!
